✨✧ Ahmed Abdul-MalikEast Meets West (180 gram pressing) ... LP
RCA, 1960. New Copy (reissue)... $11.99
A brilliant mix of jazz and world music! Abdul-Malik was the legendary bass player from the fifties who mixed straight jazz playing with traditional Middle Eastern rhythms – and although he most famously recorded albums with Monk as a regular bassist, his albums on his own are amazing ...

✨✧ Ahmed Abdul-MalikEastern Moods Of Ahmed Abdul Malik ... LP
Prestige/Doxy, 1963. New Copy (reissue)... $21.99
One of the most compelling albums ever recorded by Ahmed Abdul-Malik – and that's saying a lot, since all of his albums are pretty darn great! The set's got a style that's very strongly in keeping with the "eastern moods" of the title – with less of a jazz sound than some of ... (Jazz, Global Grooves) read more LP, Vinyl record album

African Music MachineBlack Water Gold ... LP
Soul Power, 1972/1974. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $9.99
Incredible work from the obscure African Music Machine – a southern funk combo led by bassist Louis Villery – a legendary batch of funky singles, finally brought together as a full album!

Glitterbeat, 2016. New Copy ... $25.99 26.99
A set recorded in Haiti, but one that features lots of heavy drums from the legendary Tony Allen – whose work here does a great job of bridging the sounds of two different cultures!

Tony AllenHome Cooking ... LP
Comet (France), 2002. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... $21.99
Stunning work from superdrummer Tony Allen – light years ahead of his original Afro Beat recordings with Fela! Tony's a consummate artist who's never stopped growing, and he's taken the energy of the Afro Funk revival of recent years, and used it to inspire him in new creative directions. ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Tony Allen & Afrika 70Progress ... LP
Kindred Spirits (Netherlands), 1977. New Copy (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
An Afro Funk classic – killer solo work from Tony Allen – originally known as the drummer for Fela during his key years – stepping out here on his own with the Afrika 70 band! The album's a monster all the way through – every bit as great as any of Fela's 70s classics, but ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Kindred Spirits (Netherlands), 1979. New Copy (reissue)... $21.99
Tony Allen steps out onto his own – moving away from the Afrika 70 group who accompanied him on his first three solo albums – nicely cooking here into a whole new groove! The tracks are a bit shorter than the side-long jams of previous records, but no less funky – as Tony somehow ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Amanar De KidalTumastin ... LP
Mississippi/Sahel Sounds, 2016. New Copy ... $15.99
Great work from one of the darkest groups working on the current Tuareg scene – an ensemble who can vary their tone nicely, and produce a range of emotions and compelling sounds that really make this set stand out from the pack! Sure, there's plenty of offbeat guitar work with lots of snakey ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

AmasGrill ... LP
PMG (Austria), 1981. New Copy ... $23.99
Gbubemi Amas has a vocal approach that's right on the money sometimes, and which hits this very unusual trill at others – almost the sort of wobbly inflection you'd hear from an instrument, which makes for a very unique sound! The album's almost a soft rock or AOR take on Afro funk at times ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
